No matter which production step needs to be automated - whether in receiving or processing raw materials, picking and packing goods, or palletizing and distribution - robots can assist in each of these steps. Conveyors, grippers and automated guided vehicles are just a few of the process-supporting tools that increase the productivity of personal care products and reduce costs.
Fast and precise
Speed, versatility and accuracy
are the three things that matter in pick-and-place applications
. KUKA pick-and-place robots such as the KR DELTA
are fast and ideal for sorting and placing products
. Its stainless steel body makes it suitable for hygienically sensitive applications, such as direct contact with food, medicines or electronic components.
When things have to move particularly fast: the KR AGILUS
six-axis robot is designed for extremely high operating speeds
. It can perform up to 150 cycles per minute - with maximum repeatability and continuous precision. Do you have a task in the assembly of small parts, material handling or testing? Then the compact KR SCARA
robot may be the robot of choice. With a variety of integrated media supplies, almost any task can be implemented out of the box.
Simple and intuitive
As is the case everywhere, the automation solution must be easy to operate
, otherwise it will not provide any added value in the long term. Intelligent software
enables simple operation and fast, intuitive programming
. Software such as KUKA.PickControl
, which automatically adapts the robot to the movement of the conveyor belt, and KUKA.PalletTech
, which easily configures and executes various palletizing tasks, are just two examples of simple KUKA software and programming solutions.
Durable and holistic
Longevity is the order of the day, and not just from a sustainability perspective. As part of its commitment to support its customers every step of the way, KUKA provides a global network of system partners
who have extensive application experience with KUKA automation products and solutions and can apply industry-specific knowledge to solve individual customer projects. And if things do go wrong: the my.KUKA digital customer portal
offers unrestricted access to product support and 24/7 support
via a technical hotline.
